Blending Basics For Essential Oils

essential oils with fruits and herbs( — Like the improvised riffs carried from a jazz trumpet, touching notes high and low, blended oils have an affinity to science…and a passion for creativity.


An essential oil blend is prepared for various therapeutic and aesthetic effects. The blending process is not difficult. All it takes is creativity, along with a sense of the purpose of the blend. A successful blend requires knowledge about the properties of essential oils and experience in balancing the different aromas to achieve the desired result.

When therapeutic blending of essential oils are used for health applications, the blends are often more effective than using any single oil alone. Blends usually consist of two or more essential oils. Some oils, when combined, complement and enhance each other to create a “synergy” with one another.
